Should you get the urge to spark your creativity, be sure to visit Gail at Mind Wide Open. On the first of every month she offers an image and a word prompt for anyone to run with and then offer up in a challenge. I first heard about this site through Joy at Joy to the Blog. I've lurked at the site for several months and decided to participate in the challenge this month as I could not resist this image. The word prompt was "moments". I made this collage below in my sketchbook. This is my rendition of "Stolen Moments in Time".
I've only recently started giving myself the opportunity to explore different ways to express my creativity. When soaking up the sun in South Beach recently, I was reading, "Living the Creative Life" by Rice Freeman-Zachery. This is an excellent book that you should definitely check out. She talks about how everyone is creative, but not everyone takes the time to go further with some of those thoughts or ideas that pop into our heads at any given moment.
In all aspects of my life, I am trying to capture each moment and not rush through any of them. I have become so much more peaceful and content and I think a little of that came out in my contribution to the April Mind Wide Open challenge. There's so much stimuli that comes our way each day. I don't want to miss any of it.
